Default Arapahoe Basin Colorado - 9 hole course

https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=7923

Thanks to Al's blog, I now know that Arapahoe Basin is adding 6 holes this year to make a 9 hole course, set to open "in a few months". Looking forward to seeing the reviews. One of my favorite places to go in the winter months.

Anyone on here involved with this?

So, they just had 3 holes before? Not sure why they would bother with 3, but 9 holes will get people up there.

This is probably the highest elevation disc golf course in existence. Almost 11,000' at the base of the skill hill and over 13,000' at the top. Looks like the course was/will be closer to 11,000' elevation.

This course would probably only be open for a month or two each summer. At that elevation, the snow sticks around a long time. I skied A-Basin on July 5th sometime in the mid nineties. Only one run open, but it was fun skiing in shorts and a tee shirt.
